Reply To: USB file limit?

    Hi, I’m new to the customs community, and I’ve got a question. Are you moving your custom songs to your hard drive or are you leaving them on your flash drive? I followed the instructions of having a 32 Gig flash drive for my customs and I ran into an issue last night that maybe you could provide some insight on.


    Over the weekend, I downloaded about 200 customs to my flash drive and had a blast playing them. Last night, I added about 100 more and Party Buffalo added them fine, but when I put them in the XBOX, it only saw 256 of them. I took the drive out and put it in back in my computer and Party Buffalo only saw 256 also. I tried adding more and it wouldn’t work. I tried deleting the songs so I could try importing them again and the program would crash. At that point, my only option was to re-format the drive and start again. I got all the original 200 songs back on the flash drive and I was able to move them to the hard drive with no problem.

    Is there a 256 limit on songs you can have on the flash drive? If so, why did the instructions say to use a 32 Gig flash drive if it only took 5 or so Gigs before it hit 256 files?


    The only other problem I have is hitting the Harmonix song limit. I was a Harmonix completionist so I need to find more songs to get rid of. <img decoding=” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_frown.gif” />


    In closing, I want to thank you for providing new content for Rock Band. I’ll look forward to your new announcements. Between the customs, conversions and the Harmonies Project, my friends and I will be rocking for a long time. :dance:


    I’m also a completionist and here is what I did for my official songs. All songs released pre RB3 that dont have harmonies, keys I put on a 120GB internal hard drive. All songs released after RB3 I have on another 120GB. I have 1 RB3 save data file that I move between hard drives depending on which I’m playing. Both hard drives have separate song cache files. Now the project is to get another 120GB hard drive to have as many customs as possible stored on it with of course a new RB3 save game file that stays on the custom drive.
